Afro Punk Festival NYC Summary

Event Overview: Afro Punk Festival NYC is not only one of the best free events in NYC for music and art-lovers, but this year's 8th annual event will include a wide variety of food trucks, Harley Davidson Bike exhibits and more! This Brooklyn music event has become one of the top free cultural events in New York City, and its focus is in support of the African-American music scene.  

What to Expect: If a free concert in NYC isn't enough to grab your attention, the big name lineup, amazing eats, skating and BMX shows at the Afro Punk Festival in NYC may do the trick!

  • The Lineup: The Afro Punk Festival in NYC 2012 lineup includes Erykah Badu, Gym Class Heroes, Janelle Monae, Das Racist, Skindred, and many many more bands.  Check out the mix of hip-hop, indie, Raggae and live DJ's.
  • Bites and Beats: One of the new additions to this year's Afro Punk Festival in NYC includes the Bites and Beats food truck festival which provides tastes from around the world and trucks from around the boroughs. Afro punk-goers can grab a bite and learn about some great local food. 
  • Custom Bike Show: Harley Davidson is pairing up with Denim and Chrome of the Brooklyn Black bike scene to present a custom bike show at the Afro Punk Festival NYC.  Get an up-close look at some of the most impressive bikes and you'll even have a chance at being part of a 2013 calendar shoot for the event.
